Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Your favorite anomaly

Was listeining to 11/9/79 this AM and was thinking about how great the fast Franklin's is. I love how they go in fast and stay there right to the end. You can almost feel them looking at eachother towards then end and wondering "How are we going to land this thing?"- because you know it is too fast for the usual ending. I love those versions of songs that are outside the norm for the Dead (like there really even is a norm).

Wondering if you have some favs. in this category you might like to share? One of the upbeat TLEO's? Or something with a guest musician?..........

the Bertha on 12-27-77 is uncharacteristically fast for that era.

Then there's the China> CRAZY FINGERS>Rider from 7-29-88. I often wondered if they just forgot what they were playing or something

i know what you mean, and i kinda felt that way when listening to the 1/3/70 'Uncle John's Band', not particularly a song i get all revved up about, and i can't really say why it's an anomaly, but i remember thinking, hmm, this is different:

and it's not an anomaly by any means, but if you consider ferocity and incendiary sonic insanity, the Other One from the same show is just plain sick

My favorite right now is the show I've been blasting for a few days now: 2-18-71. There is a certain
je ne sais quaalude here, in addition to many breakouts--a fine blunt edge, a kind madness, with scorching Johnny B. Goode, catchy uplifting jam out of Dark Star, Hard to Handle almost early-Zepplinesque, unique phrasing of the "sunshine daydream", roughshod and strangely innocent "pumpman"-- just outstanding.

From Dead Base:

"First "Bertha" - first "Greatest" - first "Loser" - first "Playin" - first "Wharf Rat" - Mickey's last show until 10-20-74 - E.S.P. show - also: NRPS - this run was recorded for "Skull Fuck"; none of it was used"

i just love those fast, uptempo 68 stephens. the raw power, and energy is awesome. unlike those wimpy, dull 76/77 stephens. see 9/2/68 for example. it's track number five.

all of them- great!! I toy with the idea of burning myself a "dream show" but I also like the idea of a compilation of these "anomalies" as well.

Keep them coming!!!!!
